Today we rode Mt. Falcon, in the red rocks near Denver. This starts at 6000 ft and climbs 1500 ft in 2.5 miles. This was very challenging aerobically due to the constant climb at higher altitude than I'm used to, and also the power you have to apply to go over various rocks and water bars. It was also challenging technically for a newbie like me. It was fun going down. We were careful and not too fast. Here are pictures of me (in the orange shirt) and Gail (in the white and red shirt).
From Dec. 22, 2008 to mar. 14, 2010 I posted about my daily commute in Madison, Wisconsin. It was fun to log pictures of the bike path and my brief thoughts and weather conditions throughout the year. Then I got interested in other things and stopped blogging for over a year. I still commute daily, even longer now (7 miles one way) and absolutely love it.
Now I'm blogging my biking experiences while traveling. I love to take my road bike and mountain bike along with me on road trips in the car. It's a great way to see the country and meet locals. It makes business and family trips a lot more fun, in addition to vacations.
